By Jon Swisher-Sports Director:
Day 2 of the 2014 State track and field meet in Des Moines wrapped last night with more successful results for area athletes and teams.
Class 1A girls;
For the second year in a row the North Linn distance medley squad of Ingwerson, Newbauer, Burke and Miller won a state title again playing the role as underdogs wit a fourth seed. The Lynx edged Jesup by nearly four seconds to claim the gold. North Linn is in perfect striking distance of 1A team leader Central Elkader. The Warriors hold the slight points advantage 24-21 but the Lynx compete in four relays today and hold the top pre-meet time in three of those events.
Starmont took third place in the sprint medley ahead of Maquoketa Valley who placed 4th.
Once again today we’ll have updates from Des Moines every around 45 minutes past each hour starting after 9am.
